The cloaked figure opens his arms and grins as casting a powerful spel, but only spaks are projected from the tip of his fingers! In the meanwhile, Garl feels his magic power being depleted, but he's satisfied he just managed to stand up to the big challenge... by a whisker!
Storm and Rob take the chance and bit the enemy very badly!

Seeing the the fight just turned a melee, your enemy unsheathes a sword from a fold of his robes and prepares to fight for his life, his grin completely faded.

Once again you hit your enemy, causing much damage! However, he's not done yet and keeps fighting with his sword!

Re: The Fall of Skelo, Scene 3: The Ruins of Skelo
When your enemy falls, his physical body turns suddenly into char as a devilish scream of rage forces everybody on the floor, clutching their hands on the ears, then a dark fog materializes from the charred body and condenses in a diaphanous, ungodly figure in mid air. The nethershadow figure extends its arms and a sudden earthquake shakes the earth! As the earthquake rages and the library is severely shaken, strong lightning can be heard from outside. However, the shadow is getting thinner and thinner: it spent all its energy on releasing its rage through natural disaster and it is now weak, too weak… and it finally dissolves in a gust of wind.
The battle is over.

Re: The Fall of Skelo, Scene 3: The Ruins of Skelo
With the knowledge of the Library of Skelo you realize that you have a huge power in your hands and it is now up to you to decide how you want to use it.
You can take over the continent and turn everybody into your slaves or you can initiate a new era of civilization. What used to look impossible to you, now seems easy: take your time to study as much as you can and then you will be able to realize your wildest dreams!

Among the charred remains you find some magic objects and in the library you find plenty of knowledge that will give you the keys to the power.

Re: The Fall of Skelo, Scene 3: The Ruins of Skelo
You already found these items:
quote:
• A Scroll containing the Teleport (6) spell. A Wizard needs to read it just once to be immediately able to cast the spell.
• A Scroll containing the Wall of Power (6) spell. A Wizard needs to read it just once to be immediately able to cast the spell.
• The Book of the Ancient Hero which adds 2 points to initial and current STAMINA score of the reader (only once in life, of course).
• The Romance of Lethe: a collection of ancient poetry which grants the reader a +2 bonus on every Social Action roll which implies storytelling or poems recitation (only once in life, of course).
• The Art of Carnage dictated to the Scribes of Pentergan by the legendary Human Warlord Huriah. Once read it bestows a +2 bonus when rolling for strategical or tactical matters associated to warfare.
• A Cornucopia: a magic object that produces fresh food and drink (for the tastes of a traditionalist Elf) to the rate of a meal every turn (if removed from the Cornucopia to be replaced by a new meal).

Of course now you have time to read all that is relevant for you.

Among the charred remains of your ultimate enemy, you find:

Snakesword 2 3 3 3 3 5 5
When hit by the Snakesword, test for LUCK or become immediately paralyzed.

Ring of the Arcanum which rises his Initial MAGIC by 5 points. The magic ring’s drawback is that no other magical trinket may be worn by the Wizard who uses this wonderful source of magical power.

Ritual of the Darkness Reaper
Magic-Conjuration: 6
Type: Summoning
Components: five blood red candles, the freah heart of an innocent
Time taken: 1d6 turns
Rarity: Legendary
Description: Summons a Darkness Reaper for 1d6 turns. During this time the Darkness Reaper will follow the orders of the conjurer, needs to take (or attempt to take at least one life from a living creature, or it will turn on its conjurer.
DARKNESS REAPER
SKILL 11
STAMINA 20
LUCK 12
ATTACKS 2
Fists 3 4 4 4 5 5
The fiendish DARKNESS REAPER may be wounded only by magic or magical weapons. It regenerates 1 stamina point per combat round and is immune to cold-based attacks.



Having a more in depth look at the library, you find a book that, although its language sounds quite antiquate, you can still understand: The Art of Weapons. Reading it lleads to a +2 on a Weapon Special Skill at character's choice. This benefit can be accrued only once in life and the Weapon Special Skill chosen can not go over (6).

Other souces of knowledge in the library will require more time to get the benefits, as you will need to learn the ancient language and translate them first.

Re: The Fall of Skelo, Scene 3: The Ruins of Skelo
Storm would like to take some time to learn ancient langagges and read the books to see if he can learn basic magic.
